It's actually still a very valuable use case to consider, given that WordPress has features that can take advantage of this type of environment. Still very cheap way for most business to get started with managed hosting and great support. Shared Hosting still has a Great Time to Production factor.

😂But I get you, Server Less is King now

WordPress? What year is this? :p

While I can agree that it has good value, I can't see how it could be superior to a 5$/month VPS, where you are root and other users don't impede on your resources.

I guess the 28plus percent of the internet is running behind. The superiority of root is for those that understand it's usage and meaning - so what am trying to say is that a large number of small business customers may not have the knowhow of using root nor do they require it for their business to run a simple shopping cart or magazine. All they need is click, drag & drop then done - money.

I do enjoy using Heroku, Vultr and Firebase on personal projects.

I think we can agree on that, yes :)
